ABSTRAKT FORUM 2  //PAWILON LETNI

What happens when graffiti abandons its classical form, forgets its assumptions and stops looking at the canons? Which decks of new possibilities conceal abstraction, which is limited only by the imagination of the artist? We wanted to see where its boundaries lie and whether they exist at all, inviting contemporary co-authors of abstract paintings, whose common denominator is widely understood street art. The result of our efforts is the exhibition of images ABSTRACT FORUM 2017, which will soon appear on the walls of the Summer Pavilion Forum Space.

ABSTRAKT FORUM is a collective exhibition of works by unconventional artists, whose work escapes the common definitions of classical graffiti. Curators of the exhibition - Łukasz Habiera Nawer and Maciej Malinowski - have selected outstanding contemporary painters whose roots are firmly embedded in the street arte, but what they are creating now strives for unstrained abstraction, deprived of principles, key motifs and specific graphic forms. The decisive aspect in choosing artists was the idea of “Graffuturism” - an innovative concept that, although it helps to classify the presented, difficult to define images. The new, exciting possibilities, unlimited imagination and creativity of the invited creators are the decisive components of the ABSTRAKT FORUM exhibition, which is the first in Poland to explore and expose the audience about abstraction by street artists.

The exhibition of paintings will be available at the Summer Pavilion of Forum Spatrzenie ul. Konopnickiej 28 in Cracow.
